Q: Why is it so hard to stop worrying?

A: On the negative side, you would think that your constant worrying is harmful, that it’s going to drive you nuts or impact your physical health. Or you could be worrying that you’re going to lose all control over your worrying—that it would overpower you and never stop.

On the positive side, you could have this belief that your worrying aids you in avoiding bad things, dodges problems, prepares you for the worst, or makes you come up with solutions.
